The living area
Custom wall-mounted cabinets echo the ones in the kitchen as far as materials go, but their positions are staggered because, says Gramenos, “if everything is perfectly lined up, there’s nothing to look at.”
 

READY FOR PRIVATE TIME AND PARTY TIME
Gramenos’s four distinct “moments” in the main room (the kitchen, a TV area, a seating area near the fireplace, and the dining niche) work together for entertaining, thanks to easy-to-move seating. Black-edged windows and an espresso finish on the floor provide a smart contrast to the white kitchen cabinets and CaesarStone quartz countertops.
